Imagine seeing a village, a town, a hamlet through the eyes of those who live there, while you wander the streets of off -the-main-road villages that are not on the top 10 sites that every tourist visits to take a selfie, but are real and thriving everyday life.  Local markets, boutique shops and gourmet restaurants where the locals gather. Have you ever heard of a touring company giving the option to alter the itinerary to suit the needs of the small group? Probably not. But Artistic Gourmet Adventures can do just that because YOU are the most important part of the equation!

April in Paris – Sunday, April 28 – Saturday, May 4, 2019

April is the perfect time to see Paris. There is an added excitement in the air as Parisians shed their winter cocoons and step out into the long awaited sunlight. Trees are blooming, flowers blossoming and the spring breeze brings with it the scent of honeysuckle and roses. Kim and Walter Eagleton fell in love with the City of Lights while living there. Every person, every street, every building has a story to tell of the glorious and not so glorious histories of one of the Europe’s oldest cities.

Paris on Sale! –

Sunday, June 30 – Saturday, July 6, 2019

By law clearance sales are state-regulated in France and generally run during two periods of the year: once in summer, just before the massive exodus toward the sea and sun, and once in the winter, shortly following Christmas. Department stores, boutiques, designer outlets, and even hardware shops clear out items from the previous season, gradually slashing prices over the course of the sales period.  So you can imagine the anticipation when the sales time comes around! What is the word to look for? SOLDES!
